H.R. 3325, also known as Public Law 117-32, was signed into federal law by President of the United States Joe Biden on August 5, 2021. It is a bill to award the Congressional Gold Medal to the police officers who defended the United States Capitol during the attack on January 6, 2021.[1] The bill was first introduced in the House of Representatives on May 19, 2021. It was passed unanimously by the United States Senate on August 4, 2021. It was signed by the president on August 5, 2021, in a Rose Garden ceremony, attended by the officers' widows.[2] The text of the bill specifically lauds Washington, D.C. police officer Jeffrey L.
